Optical illusionary sculptures from Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich. Leandro is influenced by Jorge Luis Borges, Alfred Hitchcock, Roman Polanski, Luis Buñel and David Lynch, he uses cleverly placed mirrors to create a mind melting result.
“Erlich creates spaces with fluid and unstable boundaries. Before one tries to make sense of his sculptures and installations, one senses the uncanny. A single change (up is down, inside is out) can be enough to upset the seemingly normal situation, collapsing and exposing our reality as counterfeit. Through this transgression of limits, the artist undermines certain absolutes and the institutions that reinforce them.” Sean Kelly Gallery
Leandro Erlich is represented by The Sean Kelly Gallery, New York and Ruth Benzacar Galeria de Arte, Buenos Aires. The Bâtiment (‘Building’) sculpture is currently on show at 104 Centquatre Paris until 4th March 2012.
